Employment Policies

We Welcome You

All candidates will be considered without regard to any non-merit reason such as race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, lawful political affiliation, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, protected genetic information, parental status, membership in an employee organization, or other non-merit factors.

Equal Employment Opportunity Policy (EEO)
by Sheryl Morrow, Commissioner of the Bureau of the Fiscal Service

Together, each and every employee makes up the foundation upon which Fiscal Service sustains mission excellence. Our duty to those we serve requires a workplace that at all times promotes diversity and equal opportunity, while upholding our core values of integrity, collaboration, learning, accountability, and excellence.

Each one of us is responsible for preventing and eliminating all forms of discrimination that violate the law or policy including practices and procedures that adversely impact our workforce, applicants for employment and those seeking to participate or receive benefits from Fiscal Service sponsored programs. I expect all employees to adhere to this principle.

Each year, I issue an EEO & Diversity Policy statement to remind all employees of their rights and responsibilities under the law and how to seek assistance if they believe they have been the subject of discrimination. Federal laws, Presidential Executive Orders, and other laws are designed to protect individuals from discrimination on the bases of race, religion, color, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity or expression), sexual orientation, parental status, marital status, national origin, age, disability, family medical history or genetic information, or any other non-merit based factor. These protections extend to all employment actions.

Employees are also protected against retaliation or reprisal. I have zero tolerance for acts of retaliation against an employee who engages in a protected activity, whistle blowing, or the exercise of any appeal or grievance right provided by law. Anyone who believes they have been discriminated against must know they can exercise their right to file an EEO complaint or otherwise oppose unlawful discrimination without fear of retaliation.

Individuals who believe they have been subjected to discrimination on any above-mentioned prohibited basis should contact our EEO Office at (304) 480-6527. The Equal Employment Opportunity & Diversity staff is ready to assist anyone in any aspect of our EEO Program, including reasonable accommodations, diversity hiring, as well as resolving complaints of discrimination.

I expect an environment free of discrimination and any form of harassment, where all employees may work without fear of reprisal, where qualified employees and applicants with disabilities receive reasonable accommodations so they can be successful at their work, and where all employees are recognized for their individual performance and contributions to Fiscal Service without regard to any non-merit factor.

Executives, managers, and supervisors bear a unique responsibility to comply with and ensure the policies and processes outlined in this memo are given the widest dissemination and fullest measure of execution and implementation.

Thank you for your commitment, dedication and hard work to make Fiscal Service a model employer.

Policy on Discriminatory Harassment
by Sheryl Morrow, Commissioner of the Bureau of the Fiscal Service

I want to reaffirm my commitment to ensure every Fiscal Service employee enjoys a work environment free from unlawful discrimination or harassment of any kind. Discriminatory harassment is a violation of federal civil rights laws and is strictly prohibited.

I have zero tolerance for any form of discriminatory harassment, even when the behavior does not rise to the level of a violation of federal law. In addition, retaliation against any employee for reporting harassment under this or any other policy or procedure, or for assisting in any inquiry about such a report will not be tolerated.

The law requires employees be provided a number of avenues to report allegations of discriminatory harassment. If you believe you are being harassed or have witnessed someone else being harassed, you should report it to your immediate supervisor, the Equal Employment Opportunity & Diversity Officer at (304) 480-6527, or the Workforce Relations Branch at (304) 480-8329.

Managers are responsible for knowing our anti-harassment procedures to ensure proper steps are followed when an employee brings forth an allegation of harassment.

Through enforcement of this policy and by education of all employees, Fiscal Service will seek to prevent, correct and discipline behavior that violates this policy. With your cooperation, we can ensure Fiscal Service preserves the right of every employee to work in an environment that is harassment free.

EEO Complaint Procedures & Contacts

As a federal employee or applicant for employment, you are protected against discrimination based on your race, sex, national origin, color, religion, age and physical or mental disability.  Retaliation for action taken to oppose or remedy discrimination is also prohibited. Certain Executive Orders also provide protection against discrimination based on sexual orientation, parental status, and protected genetic information.

If you feel you have been discriminated against, you MUST contact the EEO Office within 45 calendar days of the date of the incident that gave rise to your complaint, the date you became aware of the incident, or, if a personnel action, within 45 calendar days of its effective date or your knowledge of the action.

The Counselor will advise you of your right to elect between participation in traditional counseling activities or in the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process. During traditional counseling, the Counselor has 30 calendar days from the time you report your problem to attempt an informal resolution of the matter. If, at the end of this time, the problem is not resolved, you will be advised, in writing, of your right to file a formal complaint. The 30-day period may be extended to an additional 60 if YOU agree in WRITING to such an extension.

Should you elect to participate in ADR resolution, traditional counseling will not be attempted. Agencies have 90 days to conduct ADR during the pre-complaint process. If, at the end of this time, the problem is not resolved, you will be advised, in writing, of your right to file a formal complaint.

Any person who believes they have been discriminated against may submit a written complaint to Manager, EEO Office, Bureau of the Fiscal Service, 200 3rd Street, Room 301, Parkersburg, WV 26106 or contact the EEO Office at 304-480-6838 or 304-480-6527.
